Sciatica is a term applied to nerve pain in the lower back and legs. When there is a need for information about techniques to provide reliable pain management Edmonton locals have been using epidural steroid injections (ESIs) for more than sixty years. ESIs are used for other types of low back and leg discomfort as well. They are a non-invasive alternative for sciatica.
Sciatic symptoms may include any of several symptoms, such as pains that worsen when sitting, burning pain down the leg, weakness or numbness in moving the leg, a constant sharp irritation on one buttock or the other, or sharp spasms that interfere with the ability to stand or walk. Sciatica is a symptom, rather than a disease. It is very painful but rarely causes permanent damage to the nerve. [More]
